If its on the same computer, just sign out of the Creative Cloud application and then sign in with the other account.

Changing accounts does not cause you to lose images or catalogs.

You need to create an account with a new username and password, and subscribe Using the username and password. Yes, you will need a subscription to at least the photography plan if you are planning to use Lightroom Classic and Photoshop. If you have those applications installed on your personal computer then all you would have to do is go to the creative cloud manager and sign out then sign back in using your new personal username and password. If the catalogs and photos on your computer containing personal work then all you have to do is continue working on those catalogs and photos.

 

The same process applies if you are referring to Lightroom, which some people referred to as Lightroom CC (i.e. the cloud version of Lightroom).

Apparently we need to be more clear. Your images and catalog are not tied to a specific account. They are basically independent entities accessed by Lightroom Classic. All that is necessary is for you to be logged in using a valid Adobe ID and password. If you log out, using the  Creative Cloud Application Manager, and then login using a new Adobe ID and password, that is all that is necessary. Then all you have to do is start Lightroom Classic. It will find the same catalog it was using before, connected with the same images, and all you have to do is start working again just as you did before. The only difference is that now you will be paying for the subscription rather than your employer, and you will be using a different Adobe ID and password. Everything else will remain the same. Program updates will be available to you when they are ready.

Have you been using Lightroom Classic or Lightroom with your work account? You posted your question in the Lightroom Classic forum, but I am guessing you are actually using Lightroom.

If you are using Lightroom, then your photos are in the cloud. Moving those images to a personal account may be very challenging. I would contact Adobe support for help.

If you are using Lightroom Classic, then your catalog and photos are on your computer. All you have to do is sign into your new personal account with the Creative Cloud desktop application.
